At the time of the car accident, Thomas and Cara were living with their mother, Patricia Roberts. She had automobile insurance from the Progressive Northwestern Insurance Company ("Progressive") that covered the three vehicles she owned. The policy included uninsured car coverage for each vehicle with a limit of 25,000 USD per person and 50,000 USD per accident.
